ZombiU Live Action Video Shows Multiplayer Battle

All hail the Zombie King

Halloween may be gone for the year, but one particular Wii U game will be playing on the fact that, for many of us, it's the time of year with long, dark nights. ZombiU is one of the most eagerly anticipated Wii U launch titles, with early impressions emphasizing the complexities and difficulties it'll offer, as well as its extensive use of the GamePad controller. It's a game targeting committed gamers — dare we say hardcore — and Nintendo and Ubisoft have put a lot of effort into spreading the word.

The latest video from Ubisoft, meanwhile, opts to demonstrate one of the multiplayer modes, using a mix of live-action and in-game footage. One player is the King of the Zombies, which is a rather grand title, and uses the GamePad to spawn zombies around a map. The other player has the misfortune of a rather dull name, The Survivor, and has to desperately fight off the zombie hordes.

You can see what it's all about in the rather stylish trailer below. Bear in mind that this is for ZombiU, after all, so there's some simulated gore and killing of zombies.
